• "This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.

    "I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."

    -Dr. Rita Cavin
    UCC Interim President

  • Need to talk? Community partners have come together to provide support and sharing with UCC students, faculty and staff.

    Beginning Monday, Oct 5, grief sharing will be available on campus, 7:30am - 5pm in the cafeteria.

  • Want to help?

    The Greater Douglas United Way is accepting donations via text and online: http://www.gduway.org/UCCgive

    The Umpqua Community College Foundation is accepting donations online and by mail: https://www.umpqua.edu/scholarships-donations

    We strongly recommend that donors cast a careful eye when considering other funds, as some are not based at charitable organizations and might apply high administrative fees. Also, unfortunately, at times like these, there are unscrupulous people who will set up false accounts.

Criminal Justice: AS with SOU

Associate of Science: Articulated with the Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCJ) Program at Southern Oregon University – 90 Credits

UCC's AS degree in Criminal Justice has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University in Ashland. The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Criminology and Criminal Justice program and allows you to transfer directly as a junior.

In addition to the practical, hands-on skills needed for successful careers in the criminal justice field, UCC students learn how to balance their off-duty lives with the challenges of criminal justice professions. They develop strong communication skills, a broad understanding of case law, legal statues, and professional standards, and learn how to succeed in diverse environments.

All three associate degree options transfer to four-year colleges. The Associate of Science in Criminal Justice is a partnership program that transfers seamlessly to Southern Oregon University in Ashland.

UCC’s Criminal Justice programs are open throughout the year. Students can start any time.
